If you're lucky Go grab one of the flashable 4.4 ROMs out there >_>
If I could unlock the bootloader and root with 4.3 on Verizon I would. As it stands my Verizon One is completely stock 4.3 Sense 5.0.
Verizon really has you guys locked in, don't they?
I saw this back in October. Haven't tried it yet, but it sounds like those of us on Verizon *can* unlock the bootloader.
Verizon HTC One: Unlock Bootloader, Root, Gain S-Off and Install CWM / TWRP Recovery
Has anyone on Verizon tried it? The comments aren't encouraging, but they're also old.
Rather than make redundant threads on this subject in each sub rooting section, for now will keep it here...
rumrunner will give you s off,and id highly recomend to do that prior to 4.4,in case exploits are patched.
rumrunner does NOT install a custom recovery by default,so becoming s off does NOT mean that you can not OTA natuarally to 4.4 when(if ) it hits
as long as youre s off,rooting will be easy
of course,once youre s off,you can install a recovery and try one of the many 4.4 roms out there,wich are devoid of big reds bloat. there is no real benefit to waiting,IMO
I was under the impression that rumrunner did not work for Android 4.3 on Verizon and that I would have to wait for Firewater?
EDIT: Firewater should be coming out soon and I will NOT be accepting the 4.4 OTA in the meantime as i'm sure it will kill any chance I have of unlocking the bootloader. Once I get it unlocked and rooted i'll just install a 4.4 ROM. Most likely Cyanogenmod or Viper ROM.
I thot rumrunner worked with 4.3,but not having vzw any longer I haven't followed it that closely. At any rate,firewater is out: http://firewater-soff.com/
I'm itching to try it out on something,lol
I wasn't aware it was out yet, I'll be trying it out today!
I don't think its been out for a long. I just saw it last night. Let us know how it goes
Completely stock Verizon HTC One, S-on, not rooted, Android 4.3 Sense 5.0
It worked! No troubles, Firewater worked the first try using the temproot method. Verizon owners everywhere, rejoice!
Awsome! Glad it went well and you have joined us in s off land enjoy making your phone yours
